What could it be?

I'm trying to figure out what secret name my sis-in-law has in store for a girl. She is due in five days, doesn't know if it's a girl or a boy and refuses to tell us the girl name until she has one. (she's planning one more after this baby.)

What we know…

she uses only "c" names

the name is a feeling or emotion

she never uses unisex names

she says it's a very "Hollywood" name

names of her current children: Christa, Caleb, Chloe

if this baby is a boy he will be named Cayson.

Any ideas?

I'm thinking Charisma maybe?

October 17, 2014 10:38 PM

Caprice, Cherish, or Clarity? 

October 17, 2014 11:49 PM

Could be Caprice.

October 17, 2014 11:49 PM

Could be Caprice.

This is any interesting post, I like it. I'm off to google things, I hope I find something!

I found 6 possibilities, but I'm going to go with Claire. (Clarity)

girls name, starts with C, I figure she doesn't want another CH name or the balance will be off, 3 to 1.

I don't think she's opposed to a "ch" name Or even an "s" sounding "c". I didn't mention it because she didn't choose the names herself but she also has two adopted children with "c" names, Chelsea and Colton.

Claire is a good guess. What were the other names you were thinking of?

My first thought was Caprice, too! Please update us; guessing mystery names is so much fun!

My first thought was Charity, I could also see Charisma (as in Carpenter).

Carys ('love')?

Could be Carys. That is lovely.

I hope I can tell you all the name in 5 days but if she has a boy she will stay tight lipped until she has the next one. Pretty certain that will be her last.

I don't think she would choose anything as straight forward as Charity or Chastity but I don't want to rule it out. She could surprise me. So far I think the most likely guesses are Caprice, Carys, and Claire.

Thanks for the ideas. Please keep them coming.

I'd guess Carys or Charis, and Candor just popped into mind too -- not a name I'd normally think of, never mind for a girl (for some reason it seems masculine to me), but it was recently seen/heard in the Divergent books/movie (not for a person, but still). Can't wait to find out! I hope she has a girl!

My first thought was Charisma.  Though, Charisma & Christa seem too close and Charisma is a bit more daring than her other choices.  Is she a Buffy fan by any chance?  I suppose the character name Cordelia could also be an option, assuming she is a Buffy fan.

Caprice also seems possible, as does Capri.  Constance?  But that doesn't strike me as very Hollywood.  Coco?  Again, that doesn't strike me as quite her style.

Do you think she'd do a reverse Khardashian and spell a K name with a C?  Cayla?  Cim?  LOL

Constance is a possibility. I would say Cordelia is too but the better meaning sites describe it as unknown so I'm not sure what feeling or emotion it is connected to. She definitely would not change letters around unless it was an established variant.

I'm currently leaning towards Carys or some variant. Maybe Carissa.

Last night I was thinking Cosette but Christa ran it by her mom and she didn't understand what she was saying. (Could be trying to fool us but I don't think so.)

Please share any and all ideas you have. She does try to fool us with her riddles. She calls them hints but I'm suspicious.

She is in labor now. Fingers crossed for a girl. :)

October 22, 2014 9:34 PM

Please let us know either way. And congratulations in advance, Auntie!

October 22, 2014 10:04 PM

It's a boy! Cayson is his name.

I'll have to wait for the next one to learn her secret girl name. Thank you for the wonderful guesses.

October 23, 2014 12:41 AM

Noooooooooo, just wanted that girl! Lol


October 23, 2014 4:15 AM

Congratulations and best wishes!

Can you try and remember to update us in a few years' time when she has that final child... or tell her that strangers on the internet are now wondering and maybe she needs to let you know right now just so you can set many curious minds at ease -- in addition to your own? :)

October 23, 2014 2:35 PM

She won't budge. I tried. I'm sure I'll be back when the next one comes. I'm thinking two years, tops.

October 26, 2014 6:20 PM

My money is on Consternation.

October 26, 2014 7:20 PM

With so many I wouldn't be surprised if it were Chaos. Since the next will be her last my father suggested Caboose. ;)

October 27, 2014 10:43 AM

LOL, guys. Thanks for the good laugh to start the day.
